Saints outscore Harps in McDonnell/Doherty Park storm

Junior B Hurling Championship

Belfast Saints 3-13 Loch Beag Harps 2-7

Belfast Saints kept their hopes of Junior B Hurling championship success alive when they defeated new boys, Loughbeg Harps in horrendous conditions at McDonnell/Doherty Park on Friday night.

The home side started with the elements in their favour and looked to be heading for a comfortable win when they led 3-8 to 0-4 at the halfway stage.

On the resumption an ever improving Loughbeg Harps, to their credit set about reducing the margin and two goals in a five minute spell plus three points certainly gave them hope but a number of good points steadied the ship for the Saints.

In the gathering gloom and worsening wind and rain the referee’s final whistle was most welcome for everyone present.

Belfast Saints now travel to Fennell Park September in their final game on Saturday the 2nd September to face Ardoyne while Loughbeg Harps are at home to Loch Mor Dal gCais on the same day.

Referee: Anthony Carleton
